You’re not dependent, that’s right.
However, physical dependency only rears its ugly head in the final stage of alcoholism.
The previous stages are more subtle, and include tolerance (you need more alcohol to achieve the same high) and loss of control (drinking one is never enough, you keep on drinking).
While you’re not in the final stage…[Read more]
I call it The Third Person Rule-
Well, it’s pretty simple.
The rule states that when ever you are in a situation that is completely invading your mind and restricting you to think wisely, just stop there. Now assume that you are some third person( a bystander) who is watching someone caught in the very same situation. Now is your time to t…[Read more]

Arnika Tripathi replied to the topic What's the best way to react when someone is shouting at you in anger? in the forum Anger can be controlled 3 weeks ago
If you are sure you are in no physical danger, don’t do anything.
Don’t break eye contact.
Wait it out.
Sooner or later the shouter will realize that he/she is getting no where and will say something like, ‘Well, aren’t you going to say anything?’
Your response at this point should be, ‘Not until you are calm’.…[Read more]

Trust me, dear, you will not want this. I once turned my emotions off completely. ( isolation is some kind of self-defense mechanism, which may require some practice to master if one wishes to shut feelings down completely instead of just lowering them. ) Since then, it is true that life has become easier, but I have been acting like a walking…[Read more]

If you are in pain, then there is something, you are attached with. So detached from it. Because “If there is no attachment, then there is no grief”.
Don’t scratch your mind too much, you find nothing under it, except “depression”.
Do not react on everything, sometime sit back and only do …….Inhale and Exhale.

Emotions, be it love or anger, are real and natural. There can be strong or weak. But whether they make a person emotionally strong or weak depends from person to person.
Does crying make men (or women) emotionally weak or only a person who is emotionally weak cries?

Do not take yourself too seriously. This is the first step towards remaining cool and calm in every situation!
Completely agree with Mr. Allen. We live in our head for most part of our lives. Train it to be calm. Practice meditation.
